. that is what law says must happen unless we reform it. i think that is a terrible way to run a public pension program. it should have reforms. the last such reforms that have been suggested, i would be happy with any of them. there is a set of leaders and social security that is not complicated that can be done and should be done. that would be the best thing for social security. host: thank you for being on c- span. palm beach, fla., in the and the blind -- -- on the independent line -- caller: as an independent, i am starting to form an opinion that if president obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff, it appears that way, because he has had no credible counteroffer. he says i will give you cuts in the future but he is not specific. his speeches are always peppered with we have to invest. he does not mean in the private sector. he wants more the firefighters, teachers, policemen. this adds to the public debt. we are borrowing, from what i read yesterday, 46 cents on every dollar. that appears to me to be untenable. i am no fan of john boehner but he makes an offer that got him in touch with

with abortion. the country was a constructive accommodation on abortion, liberalizing the laws, the court yanked the subject of public discourse. let democracy take care of this, but on the other hand, they could say it's now safe to look at this because there's something like an emerging consensus. the opposition of gay marriage is dying. it's old people. >> that's true. but, at the same time, james carville, right now at least, split the difference position that george argued, 41 states still outlaw gay marriage. >> right. it depends on whether they're going to allow this to happen. his logic point is actually correct. the election just matters in profound ways, look at salt lake city, the mormon church after the election said, well, maybe we're going to change our position on homosexuality is a choice you're not born that way. the effects of the election reverberates all of the way through society. i can't believe that they took this up. the fact that they took it up, just tells me that they're going to uphold some of these. >> mary, not just the election, but the trend has been pretty clear
changed dramatically. let's put up the map. 37 states, either by law or in their excuses, now ban same sex marriages, but, they are legal in 9 states, as well as the nation's capitol, washington, d.c. and a new poll, 40% approve same s marriage and 30% support legal unions and 24% say same sex couples should not be allowed to enter into any such union and now we have president, kirsten, who came out in favor of same sex marriage and wants to leave it as a state issue, not a national law and some people, as the judges are comparing it to the '70s when opinion was evolve on abortion, and, the states seemed to be working it out and the court came down with a big ruling and, 40 years later we are still having the holy war on the issue. how do you see the court reacting do you see them, some people would say, creating a constitutional right? or do you think they are going to be narrow and modest in their decision. >> it would be a surprise if they did such a broad ruling and, just ginsburg talked about this a lot. roe vs. wade, how they should have left it to the states and let it play out and
said things like bahama care is the law of the land and backtracked a little, that's a signal. he's saying let's jump off the boat together, not the cliff, the boat. it's about legacy for both of them. chris: the president seems to insist on a rate hike for the top bracket, something close from 35 to 39.6. does he need something more in terms of taxing the rich, like getting rid of deductions for mortgage, charity, state, local? >> he's already got in his package which totals $1.6 trillion, an additional closing loopholes, capping deductions, so yes, he does need more. the president's in a very interesting position. he's got the high ground. he has narrowed the focus. he's got john boehner has his intermediary, his contact. i'm told that white house officials have been talking almost constantly with boehner's people in a very specific discussion about the details of the package so i think he's thinking big about a package he can take to the country and say we have begun to change the mess in washington. chris: welcome to the show, michelle. first i wonder, what does wall want? i a

we call the fiscal cliff is a law that republicans voted for and that the president steered them to vote for. and strategically, he was victorious in that. the theory of this thing was, no one wants it to happen. no one wants anything in this bill to happen. the rates to go up or all the spending cuts. but it turns out that the democrats and the president like more of what would happen on january 1 than republicans. >> do you know who agrees with you? rick santorum. i spoke to him on press pass and this is what he said. and newt gingrich, you respond after you hear this. >> the greatest leverage he has is that he put together a deal with the republicans over a year ago that gives him pretty much what he wants. which is a dramatic -- which is taxes back to the pre-bush rates. so it gets all the tax increases. and he can blame the ones that are not popular on republicans for not negotiating. he gets something that he'll never get in a negotiation. >> the rest of that conversation online, by the way, with rick santorum. newt gingrich? is that why the president and geithner are sayin
that touches three continents. in india, her sister-in-law says she was beautiful. in britain, a nurse who worked with her came to her defense. >> i don't know what i should have done or anybody else must have done. >> reporter: london police told authorities they may be interested in speaking with the deejays about the prank. now i understand those deejays are said to be in a fragile state. at the same time, keen to speak to the media and talk about what has happened. it's possible they may do that as soon as tomorrow. thomas? >> thank you. still ahead, the looming fiscal cliff has small business owners wondering how many people they can employ. we'll get a read on that next. this new mtv show capturing the attention of one u.s. senator is not happy about it one bit. why he wants to put a showstopper on it before it hits the air. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years.
to the disabled to public buildings. when george bush signed it into law, it made you proud whether you were a democrat or republican, a politician or one of the rest of us. >> this historic act is the world's first comprehensive declaration of equality for people with disabilities. >> schieffer: but that was then and this is now. >> the resolution for ratification is not agreed to. >> schieffer: partisanship runs so deep when an international treaty that callologist other countries to provide the same right to their disabled came to the senate for ratification, conservative republicans blocked it, blocked it despite a dramatic appeal by 89-year-old former republican leader bob dole, himself a disabled world war ii veteran. and even though their usual allies the chamber of commerce and veterans groups wanted it. opponents gave various reasons arguing the treaty might prevent parents from home schooling. it doesn't. i didn't hear many say though, how proud blocking it made them feel. some just seemed embarrassed. has washington changed? maybe i'm wrong but in bob dole's day, i think senators
for businesses, and it would drag down our entire economy. now, congress can avoid all this by passing a law that prevents a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. that means 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses wouldn't see their income taxes go up by a single dime. even the wealthiest americans would get a tax cut on the first $250,000 of their income. and families everywhere would enjoy some peace of mind. the senate has already done their part. now we're just waiting for republicans in the house to do the same thing. but so far, they've put forward an unbalanced plan that actually lowers rates for the wealthiest americans. if we want to protect the middle class, then the math just doesn't work. we can and should do more than just extend middle class tax cuts. i stand ready to work with republicans on a plan that spurs economic growth, creates jobs and reduces our deficit -- a plan that gives both sides some of what they want. i'm willing to find ways to bring down the cost of health care without hurting seniors and other americans who depend on it. and i'm willing
